Washington DC (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
A new study reveals that developing casual friendships with others in recovery may actually help strengthen the recovery process.
A study conducted by psychiatrists at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine evaluated data collected through another behavioral study on alcoholics, and discovered that those who developed casual, “helping” relationships with others in recovery actually assisted their own journey in staying sober.
“The results of this study further reinforce 12-Step Program ideals,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “The most effective alcohol and drug rehab programs emphasize the need for not only finding a sponsor who can help individuals through the difficult recovery process, but also developing relationships with others in recovery to share their stories with one another and to discuss daily matters affecting them. When one feels a sense of belonging to a community of others who share similar experiences, it makes the recovery process a bit easier to bear.”
